On mum's special day, shower her with extra TLC with a pampering spa treatment or a delectable lunch and dinner feast. Here's what we have for mama dearest.

 For an indulgent and healthy meal

db Bistro & Oyster Bar

When: May 12 and 13, lunch and dinner
Executive chef Joseph Kinsella’s three-course health and wellness menu, made with sustainable ingredients, is perfect for mums who are careful with what they put in their bodies.

Savour the freshness in the salads and mains, where she has three options: Tasmanian sea trout, Mediterranean seabass or petit filet mignon—grilled to her liking. And for that sweet but guilt-free ending, reach for the blueberry yogurt parfait. The meal comes with freshly pressed juices, too.

Verde Kitchen

When: May 12 and 13, lunch and dinner
Have a delightful afternoon with mum you as tuck into the restaurant’s healthy lunch menu. Executive chef Vijayakant Shanmugam shares that their mantra is “real food, full of natural flavours”, so they only use organic, sustainably sourced produce, some of which are from local farms.

He transforms these into delicious dishes, and he recommends mum to try the palate-pleasing salmon sashimi and pomelo salad; low-fat creamy broccoli and kale soup; and organic-crusted glacier 51 tooth fish. Bonus. Mum also gets a complimentary dessert.

This is an ideal place to bring the whole family to for a Mother’s Day brunch. There’s a lot of delectable food to pass around, starting with the appetisers of crackers with hummus and avocado dips, caviar doughnuts and Scotch egg.

Each gets a main course, a choice of Toast Royal, a filling salad of smoked trout, heirloom tomatoes, poached egg and feta; grilled seabass with a side of cauliflower tabbouleh and smoked eggplant puree; and chicken cutlets with garlic butter beans and mashed potato.

The Garden

When: May 1 to 31, lunch and dinner
Mum will definitely be charmed by this place’s lush surroundings within Sentosa. Even more so when she tries the three-course menu made for guiltless indulgence. Kick off with the light and flavourful pumpkin kaffir lime soup, before going big with the mains.

She has two choices—the wasabi miso-glazed Chilean sea bass or sous vide chicken breast—before the meal ends with the delightfully refreshing chilled aloe vera & mint jelly. Enjoy these with a complimentary glass of Prosecco, rose or the restaurant’s signature detox juice.

Chef-owner Kenjiro ‘Hatch’ Hashida wants mum to eat well, so he has prepared a concise menu that opens with the soft and silky chawanmushi, served steaming hot.

Nami Restaurant & Bar

When: May 11 to 13, dinner
Chef Shigeo Akiba’s offering starts with the indulgent cheese macaroni gratin, his favourite childhood dish cooked by his mum. It’s enough to pique the palate for the eight-course menu that commences with an array of appetisers such as the baby squid with kochujiang cream and broad beans, and snapper roe with jelly and boiled prawn.

Tell mum to save space for mains because she wouldn’t want to miss the utterly tender and well marbled Miyazaki wagyu asuka-milk pot. At the end of the meal, she will also receive a bouquet of pink carnations.
